Compatibility with DSI OpenART 4.32
29 Feb 2012

NOTOCORD-hem™ 4.3 is compatible with Data Sciences International Dataquest OpenART™ version 4.32.

Our software supports DSI’s HD or “Hybrid Digital” implantable transmitters, as well as the new cardio-pulmonary transmitter for large animal models.

Implants for small animals

HD transmitters allow scientists to collect more data per animal in a single study.

HD-S21 from DSI
The HD-S21 collects two pressures, a biopotential, temperature and activity in rats or similar sized animals. This device can be used to simultaneously monitor various pressure combinations including left ventricular pressure, blood pressure, venous pressure and more...
HD-X11 from DSI
The HD-X11 is the first transmitter capable of monitoring pressure and a biopotential in mouse models. It is frequently used to collect blood pressure and ECG.

HD-X11 may also be used in sleep apnea studies and many other central nervous system applications.

In addition to monitoring physiological signals, HD transmitters send the device ID and the battery ON-time to NOTOCORD-hem™ software.
The device ID confirms data integrity as it ensures data is collected from the correct animal, and battery ON-time provides easier tracking of remaining battery life.

Data collected with these implants can be processed with NOTOCORD® modules for cardiovascular studies including ECG, EMG and pressure analyzers, ...

Cardio-pulmonary monitoring in large animal models

DSI’s latest implantable transmitter (D70-PCTR) is capable of monitoring blood pressure, ECG, and respiration parameters (rate and volume) via chest impedance.  

This transmitter is now in use in a number of labs, to consolidate studies and correlate between respiratory and cardio-vascular physiologic events. Dogs and non-human primates models have been used so far, and other species are currently being investigated. 

For that type of signals, NOTOCORD® developed the Respiratory impedance analyzer, RIA30a. Suitable for non-human primates and dogs, RIA30a calculates parameters such as respiratory volume, tidal volume, respiratory rate and minute ventilation. The module offers an ancillary calibration mode to convert the impedance signal (Ω) into a volume (mL).
